Description Petr Cyhelsky 2009-06-26 16:03:18 UTC
Steps to reproduce: setup SOCKS proxy requiring username/password autentification -> set it as netbeans proxy in
Advanced Proxy Options dialog(don't forget filling Username and Password) -> try reloading catalog in AUC ->
"Authentication Required" dialog pops up for every connection through the SOCKS proxy.
Comment 1 Petr Cyhelsky 2009-06-26 16:19:32 UTC
Problem probably is, that in org.netbeans.core.NbAuthenticator.getPasswordAuthentication() this dialog is automatically
invoked if getRequestorType() returns ...SERVER
